A heartwarming moment from Garth Brooks’ concert in Minneapolis has gone viral after the country superstar honored a fan fighting cancer.

According to KARE, during the song ‘The Dance,’ Theresa Shaw held up a sign that read: “Chemo this morning, Garth tonight. Enjoy the dance.”

Shaw said an usher brought her up to the front row.

Brooks noticed her, walked over and began serenading her. He then handed Shaw the same guitar he used during the song, and kissed her forehead.

Brooks also took the sign on stage and said, “You have all my strength. You have everybody’s strength in here, and you go kick cancer’s a**!”

Shaw has been fighting stage three breast cancer since June.
